Design can create excitement, affect emotions, summon action or move an idea into reality, often as if by magic.

Stir Creative is a boutique design studio in Minneapolis with a
unique focus on all things related to education, health, food, creativity, community and adventure.

Leslie McDougall's expertise is cultivating partnerships to design brilliant packaging, products, brands and communications. Her great passion, intelligence, and personal commitment is demonstrated by a portfolio of work that spans over two decades.

Her work is excellent, innovative, strategic, consumer oriented and adaptable to many product categories. She brings invaluable perspective and experience from working with stellar designers and design firms, including Pierre Rademacher Design, Michael Osborne Design, Pentagram, Curtis Design, Pedersen Gesk, and Franke+Fiorella.
